I've shown other clones before, but this was a nice blooming of another clone.
very nice! so much diversity in this genus
This looks whiter than the two you posted in February..
That's really beautiful, Marni. I jut got a piece of one of these from an eBay vendor. Can you tell me how you're growing it? I couldn't find much info online.
I was using an older camera body for a few months earlier this year. I don't have another clone open right now to compare, but this one does seem especially bright.
It is frequently labeled as T. brandtiae so there may be some info under that name. Charlie Baker doesn't have a culture sheet on the orchid culture website, but does cover it in the Oncidium book. It is a slow grower and the buds take forever to develop.
I grow it usually w/ 56F minimum and 80F maximum, but have also grown at 50-52F minimum. It may actually prefer warmer conditions, but I don't have them. Dilute fertilizer at every watering, moderate light, good humidity and a boyant atmosphere, almost daily watering most of the year but little or no moss at the base so that it dries quickly.
Very nice !!
Superb plant and flowering, - love it and I got my first Trichocentrum not long ago ;-)
I had bad luck with this genus..., Your beautiful Trichocentrum photos make me think I should try more species from this genus again.
That can be arranged! I think keeping them too wet is a problem. In my experience, they do best when allowed to dry fast and be watered frequently.
Thanks, Marni. I always like those but I lost few of those in the past...I finally lost my favorite tigrinum last fall after I had had it for four years..., I almost had tears on my face and some four letter words when that happened. The only one I still have is T. longicalcaratum.
It might be a bit overblown to say "Sorry for your loss," but I'll say it anyway. Personally, I have never done well with tigrinum.
I like your current avatar (Eria pannea) very much.
I like the new avatar too(for now). Let's see how long I will keep it before I change it again.
Love this one again and again wish to grow it one day...
